    "When i moved to Arlington Heights, I heard alot of good things about this school. Such as it being a very good school, lots of well educated teaches, and friendly students. The School is anything but that. The Staff is horrible, most of them do not know how to teach a class. For most of my sophomore year chemistry class, we would sit in the computer lab and play games, because are teacher did not want to teach. For most of my World History, We would watch movies almost every day of every week. The only reason this school is so popular for students passing is because they only put 1 or 2 grades in a quarter, and its not very difficult for the hardest of learning impaired students to get a A when the teachers do not teach anything. The hallways are also packed, with students having to push and shove to get threw. The Students are all ethier on drugs, or claim to be to be cool. And the school has also gone down in the list of best schools, being beat by BG and Prospect Highschools. This School has high expectations, but falls very far from what you may have heard or expect, Keep your students away for sure!"

    "This school is against creative and talented students. Teachers ignore parents ,who want to obtain more information in order to help their children in learning problems."

    "Our family has had 3 graduates from Hersey. They have all succeeded at the university level. I know they miss their days at Hersey. They all have enjoyed their high school years. The teachers are in tune to the students. Whenever I needed to email a teacher they responded quickly."

    "I am a current student at JHHS and I have personal found that the teachers are always willing to give 100% to their students. If the student is willing to come in before/after school or even during the teachers' lunch, they will get help. The teachers are well educated and if you don't understand something, they will explain it another way until you get it. Most of the teachers have outside review sessions before tests and want to help you to succeed no matter what. The writing well has both students and teachers to help edit papers and they are all absolutely fantastic. The counselors are all willing to help adjust your schedules and help you in any way they can. The career center is always offering career treks to help you to be sure before becoming too involved. The athletics and music are both wonderful."
